Inspiring Women Changemakers is a dynamic movement of women leading transformational change – in work, in society, and in the world.

Igniting Inspiration is a unique initiative which celebrates women making a positive difference in business and society. The stories of every nominee have been published on their website and shared widely across social media to raise awareness of initiatives that are making a difference in Yorkshire business and society.

Who’s behind Igniting Inspiration?
Igniting Inspiration is the brainchild of Anj Handa, Founder of Inspiring Women Changemakers. She’s a businesswoman, speaker and writer who is passionate about making positive social change.
She says “Women who are working hard to make a positive difference to their workplaces or communities often don’t get the recognition they deserve. They work tirelessly and rarely stop to reflect on the impact that they’ve made on the people around them.
They’re usually reluctant to put themselves forward for accolades, because they don’t feel they’re doing anything special. Through my wide-reaching networks, I discovered so many positive stories that were going unheard, particularly within minority communities.
And while there are numerous campaigns for women in business, there is no one campaign – online or offline – that regularly promotes the dedication of women changemakers. This is why I created the Igniting Inspiration Awards.”
